[5] Both these cities hold this belief, and they do so because of the oracles of Bacis, in which are the lines:—“But when a man of Tithorea to Amphion and to Zethus
Pours on the earth peace-offerings of libation and prayer,

Beware then of no slight disaster threatening the city;
For the harvest wastes away in it,
When they take of the earth, and bring it to the tomb of Phocus.
